Monday 9th January – Day 5
Seabourn Quest arrived in Bridgetown Barbados at 8am this morning. We had booked on a 4×4 safari adventure to the heart of the island and then on to Bathsheba on the Atlantic east coast.
On route to Bathsheba we stopped at a monkey sanctuary where we were allowed to hold the latest arrivals…two four month old baby monkeys – cute!!
At Bathsheba we stopped for a welcome break and indulged in a rum punch cocktail and nibbles. The shore line here was fantastic and the rocks have been worn away by the relentless pummelling of the Atlantic breakers making for some spectacular toadstool shaped rock formations.
We didn’t quite make it far enough north to Mullins Beach where Vance and I got married four years ago but we did make it back to the ship for our noon cold beer ritual. A great trip but hard on the old bones and bum!!
Sail away should have been at 4:45pm but was delayed until 6pm as the ship was waiting for a truck of fresh veg to arrive. Guess we’ll be pushing on again tonight to make up the time.
Clocks forward another hour tonight so we’re now only 3 hours behind UK time.
